How to Organize a LifeLight Study

Here are three steps to get started:

As with any new ministry beginning, spend time in prayer about the possibility of leading a LifeLight study. Ask God for wisdom and guidance for both potential leaders and participants.


1. Organization

  • Talk to people about the leadership roles that need to be filled. LifeLight studies are designed to work well with a director position, a lecture leader, and small-group discussion facilitators.
  • Ask your pastor if he can step in as lecture leader.
  • Feel free to make the material your own by combining leadership roles according to your church’s needs.

2. To-Do List

  • Meet with your newly formed leadership team to select and order a study.
  • Promote LifeLight by word of mouth and with our free promotional tools.
  • Schedule meeting times that work for your group members.

3. Preparation

Once your Student and Leaders Guides arrive, explore the front pages for a full outline on how to host a meaningful LifeLight study.

    Inside the Study Guide
    • Daily study questions
    • Hymn lyrics and prayers
    • Magazine articles that provide historical background and helpful information related to each lesson
    Inside the Leaders Guide
    • Group guidance tips for all leaders
    • Lecture (short homily) texts for each session
    • Answers to daily questions from the study guide

How to Structure Weekly Meetings

Worship (5 minutes)
Begin your LifeLight study with a hymn and prayer that reflects the Scripture studied during that week.

Small-group discussion (55 minutes)
After worship, divide the large group into smaller groups*. Discussion leaders facilitate each group as participants share their answers from the week’s study guide and engage in Christian fellowship.

Final Thoughts (20 minutes)
Reassemble the small groups for the lecture leader’s homily which further clarifies the Bible text, giving everyone deeper insight into God’s Word and ideas for how to act on the truths learned.

*We recommend no more than 12 participants per small group.
We want to hear from you. Give us feedback on this page.
